Host a Crafternoon for Mind!
We find out all about up-and-coming creative initiatives from Mind – perfect for virtually connecting with fellow crafters and raising funds
After the success of their Christmas Crafternoon, Mind is planning a creative 2021 with lots of community crafting. Whether in person or virtually, anyone can get involved to help support this brilliant charity and continue to provide vital services during these times.
WHAT IS CRAFTERNOON?
Crafternoon is a chance to bring your favourite people together online – no matter where they are – and share some precious time making beautiful projects, decorations and presents. While also taking a moment to focus on your own mental wellbeing. Absolutely anyone can take part, regardless of whether you have crafted before, and it’s so easy to join in, using any supplies to hand! Mind is encouraging supporters to take part in their own Crafteroon, but if you do need any help, then the Mind fundraising team will be on hand to support. So, get together with your favourite people for a creative afternoon folding, stitching and sticking to raise money for mental health charity Mind, and help make sure that no one has to face a mental health problem alone.
WHERE SHOULD I HOST MY CRAFTERNOON EVENT?
Whether you host your Crafternoon online, or at home in-line with local guidance and Government rules, Mind will provide all the tips and practical support you need. A recent survey by Mind found that more than half of adults and over two thirds of young people said that their mental health had got worse during lockdown. Money raised from every Crafternoon will help fund support services in England and Wales for those experiencing a mental health problem.
